At how many months can you REALLY find out whether you're having a boy or girl?

With my other 2 it was 20 weeks, but now I'm hearing 16 weeks.. Has it changed?

  • Right, waiting gives you a better chance of accuracy. Some babies they can tell without a doubt at 16 weeks, simply because they are cooperating and/or better developed. But still, most offices don't want to tell you the gender and have it be wrong. LOL

  • you can find out at 16, but at 20 it's a better view.

  • they can try to tell that early, but waiting until 20 gives a better view of everything and is more accurate

  • Anytime after your 4th month

  • Unless you have a genetics test you don't know for sure until the baby is born. Sometimes you don't even know then. People aren't aware of how common it is for babies to be born with uncertain gender.

  • We found out at 16 weeks, but the baby was in a funky position so we didn't trust the results until our 20 week ultrasound. Our 16 week ultrasound was in fact, correct. That was however, the earliest I ever found out.

  • I think they can get an idea at around 14 weeks but I don't think they will guarantee it. 20 weeks is usually the best guess, but then again they have been wrong at 20 weeks too lol.
